Michael Cashman
From Albert Square to Parliament Square

Sir Ian McKellen calls it a book ‘unlike any other I’ve read’, Armistead Maupin says, ‘There are so many reasons to love this book’ and Sheila Hancock and Alan Johson are both fans. Why? Because Michael Cashman – actor, politician, campaigner, Lord – shares his story with such candour that it’s impossible not to be affected. Join him as he tells Alex Clark about his iconic role in Eastenders, how he co-founded Stonewall and his journey through grief after the death of his partner, in what promises to be a very special event.

In conversation with Alex Clark, journalist, critic and broadcaster
